Windows 10: Notepad++ spellchecker (environmental variables path issue) Solved

    Notepad++ spellchecker (environmental variables path issue)

    I am following this video tutorial but my issue starts at 3:18 (3min18seconds) into the video. I click environmental variables just like shown in the video, I scroll to "path" and click Edit. Instead of opening the single dialog box like his seen at 3:37 into the video, It opens a new list dialog box of many different files shown in this screenshot: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet (my screenshot).

    On my screenshot you can see "Path" on the left and then the right dialog opens when I click "edit". Instead of a single dialog opening like the video shows.

    The video: Installing Spell-Checker Plugin for Notepad++ - YouTube

    The screenshot (mine): Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

    Any ideas? Im stuck on this step.

    I think all you're seeing in Win 10 is a more sophisticated environmental variable editor that lists each separate item in PATH to deskill edits, rather than listing them contiguously in a single line with ; separators.

    To add, click New

    The video is for Win 8
